A quick check-in at the cut. How are my bets doing?
The Favorites Buy/Sell
Bryson DeChambeau (SELL): He’s 9 strokes back and limped over the cut line. Good call by me, and personally I couldn’t be happier…can’t stand him.
Dustin Johnson (BUY): Tied for the lead at -9. Nice work, Mike.
John Rahm (BUY): Also tied for the lead. Hot damn…this shit is easy.
Justin Thomas (SELL): He is also tied for the lead…I whiffed on this one.
Xander Shauffle (BUY): He’s at -4, T23. Solidly in the mix, but I was looking much better when he was flirting with the leaders yesterday. I’ll take it as a win, but should be better.
Now, let’s look at my Sleepers:
Patrick Reed: WHAT DID I TELL YOU?!?! Reed is at -8, a stroke off the lead. Stick with me kid, I’ll make you a star.
Tony Finau: Imploded a bit in round 2. He made the cut, so a top 25 is still in play,but I’m not claiming victory here.
Jordan Spieth: He battled back to make the cut, which, as @bennygloves pointed out, is his greatest accomplishment in like 3 years.
Justin Kokrak & G-Mac: Both missed the cut, but hey, they were super long-shots. I’m not a machine, I’m only a man.
